Just wondering my car turns itself off after about 5 seconds, if I adjust the steering column it seems to stay running. The Theft security light flashes when it turns self off. Fuel filter, fuel pump o.K. Fuses o.K. Sensors are o.K. Could it be the pcm.

Sounds like you have a problem with the passlock system. Every time you work the tilt-wheel, it may work the wiring harness going to the lock cylinder.

You might get soneone to check the P1 trouble codes, for you, that might point you in the right direction. Some of the national brand autostores will check PO codes free of charge, not sure about P1, manufacturer specific codes?
